Know Before You Go
A busy Ukulele group

Aunty Aloha's Ukulele Corner:

Kanakapila will be held at 3:30 both days.

Storytelling

Hale Mana'o:
The 'House of Knowledge' has lots of participation and learning for you to experience!

Cooking for you - men at grills

'Local Grinds' Island Food Courts:
Our three Food Courts entice you with an array of island foods and tastes. Find those enticing aromas easily with our list of vendors with their locations.

The nose knows there's goodies here you rarely find otherwise - it's home cookin' from the islands!

Keiki Activities:
Our free 'Make and Take' crafts for keiki (kids) of all ages!

NOTE: Our apologies but we won't have an Activities tent for 2022.
Check out our new Aloha Activities page - it's new and starting off with easy island recipes and activities for keiki and their families to do at home. These opportunities will grow over time with contributions from our local community.
